This part is a PC Board. Step 1 - pull the oven away from the wall far enough to permit access to the back. Step 2 - Unplug the oven. Be careful of the gas supply line. Step 3 - Before touching the new part, wear a "grounding strap." Step 4 - Using a "Phillips" screwdriver remove the four screws that connect the top cover plate that covers the control assembly. Once the screws are removed the top of the cover will need to be rotated a bit to the rear to remove it from the oven. Step 5 - Carefully remove the ribbon wire by gently grasping the locking bar tabs with a thumb and forefinger and pulling back until the ribbon wire slides out. DO NOT use any force here. Gently move the ribbon wire out of the way being careful to make no crimps in it. Step 6 - Using a magnetized "Phillips" screwdriver remove the four screws holding the oven control assembly to the oven. Carefully remove the foam insulator connected to the bottom two screws. Step 7 - Locate the new oven control assembly above the old assembly and begin transferring the wires, one at a time. Care here is needed as the connectors are tight. Grasp the connector with your fingers and pull straight back. DO NOT pull the wire. Step 8 - Once all wires are transferred dispose of the old oven control assemble and screw the new assembly back on to the stove. Use a magnetized "Phillips" screwdriver. Insure the foam insulator is attached to the bottom two screws in the appropriate holes. Step 9 - Once the oven control panel is secured, insert the ribbon wire carefully and close the locking tab. Step 10 - Install the top cover. Make sure the bottom lip is under the foam insulator and that all wires are clear and free before pushing it tight to the stove. Replace the fastening screws. Step 11 - plug-in the stove and insure all oven functions work correctly. Push the stove back into place.
